    Need to offset the front door for a real couch not a hard bench.

    @Nita Hiltner – There’s no bench… But you could sacrifice the porch for increasing the space up front enough to make it a living room…

      Owner decides she didn’t need one, just uses a hotplate that is stored away when not being used… Builder is custom, though, so can change the layout to make room for a range or other arrangement…
